You can try to plug it and melt the end of the plug. But the sidewall has so much flex in it, it will be hard to plug/seal

thanks guys im not sure what to do .... i hear the slime is good but messy if u ever have to take the tire off again ... iveheard the samething about plugs too , that the side flex's and is hard to patch .. i would hate to be going down the road and the tire to blow ,, i just bought these tires 2 month ago , they still have the tits on them .. i guess maybe for the 80 bucks i should just break down and get another tire grrrrrrr....... thanks again

      Does everyone run the tire pressure as stated on tires or perhaps a couple # below to soften the ride a little?

      I have a 2013 KQ I bought it new but rolled it a few years ago. I have replaced the left lower A-arm and left tie rod, the steering is still a little sketchy as I just eye balled the alignment. But the major issue is the left front tire cambers out at the top and has wore the tire bald. Tires have about 2000 miles on them but other 3 are half tread and left front is a slick.. I can not see anything else bent and don't know what to do..

      pulled it back to parking lot,filled it up started and ran ok.
      what do I look at first?
      the valve,or is there a separate fuel line leading to the valve?

      I have a 2007 Honda Recon ES and need some new tires. The stock tire sizes are 22x10-9 and 22x7-11. I'm looking at some Carlisle AT489 tires but the closest sizes i can find are 22x10-10 and 22x7-12. Will they fit? Thanks.

      I have a quad (Can-Am) that takes 25 inch tires, just got a set of rims with tires that are 26's, not a whole bunch taller, don't see any problems using them? My main question, just in case I want to swap the tires in the rims, is on the rear tires.
      My original tires are 25/11/12 the replacement rims, the tires are 26/10/12. If the rims have the 26/10's now, will it work with the 25/11 tires? They appear to be the same width, are they? How can I tell what will work on the rim.
      Inside the rim, it is stamped 12/7.5 ET:+51

      I bought some stock wheels and tire that came off a Honda Foreman i believe. My problem is the rear rubbs my exhaust.
      Should I just put in a spacer and move the whole thing out an inch or two? Or should I buy 2 new wheels that have the correct backing?
      I have a 96 Fourtrax 300. the wheels that were on it are 9X9.0AT the new ones are 11X7.5AT.
